Here is a list of some of the famous mouth watering street food places/restaurants/stalls in Delhi.
Bittoo Tikki Wala (BTW)
This might be the most famous tikki walla around the city. The tikki served here has set a benchmark for all the other similar Tikki wallas. His journey from a roadside stall to fully fledged shops all over the city is commendable. Tikki plate is the one that you should not miss. It is located at G-46, Aggarwal Millenium Tower, Netaji Subhash Place, Pitampura, Delhi.
When in South Extension, don’t dare to miss this one. A reasonably nicely priced snack to have but do not get fixed up in by many other fake Bombay Bhelpuri wallas in the market. Sev Puri is the one to definitely go for. It is located at G7 near Mc Donald’s, South Ex-2, Delhi.
Shree Balaji Chaat Bhandar
This shop is one of the best places for chaat in Old Delhi. Its decor is average but it serves up an incredible variety of delicious snacks.

Sita Ram Dewan Chand
When it comes to Cholle Bhature, No one can replace the legacy of Sita Ram Dewan Chand. Old clients will tell you that the chhole still retains the delicate flavour which they first tasted over half a decade ago when the shop opened.
